I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can vote and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can vote on it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Rework notes function - in one or multiple phases

    Note attachment
    • allow a note to be attached to multiple passages - with the note icon appearing on each passage
    • allow all links - to other notes, PDF's mp3's, PowerPoint's, web, mind maps, sentence diagrams, vocabulary lists
    • permit notes to be attached to a lemma, liturgical date, search string...
    • allow default note icon color to be set at the file level; permit more colors (at least match L3)
    • allow user selection of highlight style to indicate attached note/selected text - include suppressing highlighting or show only on mouse over
    • improve input window (more like…

    • Add prayer list on iphone / ipad / ipod

      This would be really useful on the go, since that is when you tend to run into people asking you to pray for something. It could be a simple mobile prayer list that syncs with the desktop or something more complicated like the ability to sync any of your prayer lists with the ipod.

          • Import/Export notes to/from Evernote.

            It would be nice if Logos (both PC and iPad/iPhone/iPod versions) could import/export notes to/from Evernote. If possible the format should be compatible with OliveTree's BibleReader so the notes can be portable between applications.

                planned  ·  Bob PritchettBob Pritchett responded

                An upcoming release of Logos will have new support for topics (and specifically the terms in the Logos Controlled Vocabulary) throughout the software.

                We anticipate bringing back fuzzy search as well.

                I’m sorry, but no date is available yet.

              • Provide management of mytags

                Please provide some way to manage mytags, preferably with ability to remove or rename 'specific' tags, and not simply 'delete all tags'. If resources have multiple tags, the only way to manage them is either with a lot of time and patience going through each one, or to create new mytags and leave lots of redundant ones lying around.

                      I’m reopening this suggestion to allow voting. However, the comment below is still true; it’s highly unlikely that this will be implemented anytime soon.
                      --
                      It’s unlikely we’ll add support for embedded images in notes anytime soon; it would add a lot of bandwidth and storage requirements to our multi-platform notes syncing, as well as new UI issues.

                    • PDF, docx files

                      Over the years in seminary, I have downloaded and collected many pdf and docx files. I would like to see Logos having the ability to search these files, make cross-reference, and make notes. If this cannot be done, another alternative is that Logos provides an internal program that would convert these files to native logos format.

                        Personal Book Builder can convert docx files to Logos books. We do not plan to implement PDF import/conversion.

                        Update: We still do not plan to implement PDF import, but I’m reopening this for user feedback, as requested.

                          We are unlikely to be able to develop for Windows Phone 7 until Microsoft adds support for other programming languages. While we use and like C#, much of our core engine is in C++, and we don’t have the resources to port it all for this platform.

                        • More control over Reading Plans

                          Focus on beefing up reading plans. I want more control over what I read, when it is read, and in what order. I want a "catch up mode" that allows me to get back on the plan when I fall behind with a choice of how long I want to take to get back on track. It would also be nice to have the program know when I have read ahead by a paragraph or a chapter by noting where I scroll to and then starting me off at that point the next day. Or giving me the option to…

                            I use the Inductive Bible Study Method quite often - it is not the only method I use because it is not the only method :-). The highlighting feature in Logos 4 has a precept palate, but it only has part of the symbols available. Does anyone know if Logos is going to add the rest of the symbols? I spoke to the good people at Precept and they said they were all for it, but Logos had to actually do it.

                                Logos 5.2a includes a “Cover” view in the Library that provides a sortable, scrollable view of book covers.

                                We are not currently planning to implement drag-and-drop reordering or “digital dust” etc. If you’re happy with the current implementation, you may wish to reallocate your votes; otherwise, you can keep them here to vote for improvements to Cover View.

I would like to be able to receive it digitally so that I can have it with me and receive new copies when I'm away from home. This would allow me to read it when I'm away from Home.
                                A company called Book Baby can make a digital copy of a book for $99.00 and you can even get it in formats for iBooks, Kindle, Nook act. I would much rather receive it as a digital version than print.

                                  I think logos should start a public domain group. I was looking on finding the best way to get public domain books. I came across a website that charges $100.00 membership fee and you can download as many public domain books as you want. These books come in a variety of formats, so you can put them into the pbb.

                                  I would be really cool if logos started a similar group. With enough members, the membership fee can fund the production of these public domain books. This would also bring in the "low end" customers seeing as they can get…

                                    • Better Control of Multi-Book Volumes/Works

                                      Please
                                      1. Allow us to search for books within multi-work volumes from the Library Screen (perhaps have a sublist under multi-work volumes displaying the different books found within).
                                      2. Display which book within a multi-work volume a search result is found
                                      3. Allow us to limit searches within a multi-work volume to a specific book found within that volume.

                                      More and more resources are being published as author-based collections were individual books are within a volume of works. This can be a problem when searching as results are displayed as being within a volume of a work and…

                                        Linked Commentaries

                                        The current implementation of linked commentaries has some difficulties in its use (Logos 4). When you cycle through commentaries using the left and right keys, the bible verse that is being linked to may change if the commentary you are viewing does not have the particular verse covered. However, if you cycle back to a commentary which does have that verse, your bible will move back to your original verse.*

                                        There are however some problems with this that make it really difficult for me to use.

                                        If you are in a commentary which does not cover the particular…

                                        • Complete Access for blind users of Screen-reading Software.

                                          I ask that a system be set up to give screen-reading software like jaws for Windows special access to Logos, comparable to the way that Adobe allows screen-reading software to interact with PDF documents in a unique way. This would mean that a user could open any resource and read a letter, a word, a line or the entire passage, just as he would any other document. I'm asking for the same kind of access that sighted users have. I understand that though there were discussions about accessibility going into production of Logos 5, nothing substantive has been done in…
